PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – The pleasant temperatures we’ve enjoyed over the last couple of days were just a glimpse of what is hopefully to come.

However, today will be a different story and more snow is expected to fall around the area this afternoon and evening.

According to KDKA-TV’s Jon Burnett, temperatures will rapidly drop from a high of 50 degrees at midnight to about 12 degrees overnight tonight.

Rain will move into the area Wednesday morning and will change over to snow by 2 p.m.

As a result, a Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for the viewing area from 1 p.m. Wednesday through 1 a.m. Thursday.

Burnett expects a general 1-3 inches of snow locally, with 4-5 inches up around Interstate 80.

The snow is expected to end overnight and we can expect partly cloudy skies with a high of 20 on Thursday. It will warm up again on Friday for a high of 59 degrees.
